Poem: On The Medical Benefits of Hemp Smoke When Drawn into the Stomach and Head

Share this with your friends

I see spring in winter,

my rage melts into tears,

my soul wings upward,

coils down to the fire and snake

in the earth’s core.

My eyes pet my cat, posing on the window sill

like she thinks she’s the sphinx, purring

without reason, her silence the riddle without question.

In my bed my woman is in me more than I am in her.

My friends far away are my fathers and sons.

My skin feels the air I’m in.

My eyes touch sky, and sky me. Outside:

space without time. I walk inside

an impressionistic painting, but in 3D,

as far as I can see, a world of dots and light

the same as what I’m made of.
